I've been playing chess since I was around 9 years old off and on. If anyone plays on chess.com I'd love to organize a CodeProject group or just add some friends. I'm not the best (~1500-1700 depending on time controls) but I'd love to play with any range of player whether I'm helping teach them or they're helping teach me.

Chess ... chess ... Is that the one with the Horsie and the Prawns, or the BFG 6000?

Lots of people. I hear it's quite popular. (needless unfunny joke - check!)
Personally, I play a little. I've never had any lessons, but every couple of years I go through a phase of playing a few games against some friends. It just so happens I am in one of those phases right now. (getting excuses in early - check!)
Based on your rating, if I pay attention I could probably give you a decent game, but I expect you would win the majority, if not all. (large dash of modesty - check!)
So I might be up for a bit of a CP league if there is enough interest. I don't have a chess.com account though, what are the limitations of the free version? (end of message - check... mate!)
I do something similar with the phases. I recently got back into it after a lengthy break. I think the only restrictions on free accounts are limited puzzles per day and no access to the video lessons. When I got back into it I did a bunch of that stuff but now I just play a couple games here and there when I have time.
